Tip 4: don't wait for motivation
Motivation comes AFTER action. Often I hear people say that they are waiting until they are motivated to get started. I'm sorry, but that's not how it works. People who work out, eat well and take care of their bodies aren't more motivated; they are more disciplined. They do it even when they don't want to. Think about brushing your teeth - do you brush your teeth because you are motivated to do so? No, you do it because you know you need to for proper oral hygiene. The same thing goes with your workouts! You need to strength train to increase muscle mass and bone density, improve your cardiovascular health, reduce the risk of disease and illness... the list goes on!
